  OPENING JANUARY 7 
2021 ANNUAL MONOTYPE SHOW | January 7 - 27, 2021 

Monotype, in printmaking, is a technique that generally yields only one good impression from each prepared plate. Monotypes are prized because of their unique textural qualities. They are made by drawing on glass or a plate of smooth metal or stone with a greasy substance such as printer's ink or oil paint.  

This exhibit is a showcase of monotypes, most made in the Scott Gellatly and Aimee Erickson’s Monotype Lab held the first weekend in January.
